Andrew Nathaniel Skeene and Junie Conrad Omari Bowers, the directors of Global Forestry Investments (GFI), were found guilty today after it was found they had deceived around 2,000 investors of £37M.
The 2 men were found guilty of conspiracy to defraud and misconduct in the course of winding up a company on the 31st May 2022.
In 2017 the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) started its investigation, after it had found that the directors had paid £13m of the investor’s money into their own bank accounts.
The directors presented the idea of investment to protect the Amazon and support local communities, in the Brazilian teak forestry fund.

· the network explained that they could not be held responsible for the actions of their advisor, as they were part of another business when arranging the investment.
· the network explained that the advisor acted out of his contract when arranging the investment.
